I created a login and registration page with the following code, but it seems to have a syntax error at the command prompt "die ()", and I'm not sure as to how to fix it?

Name the table "dbUsers." It will need 4 fields:

Name Type Addition
id int(10) Primary Key, AUTO_INCREMENT
username varchar(16) Unique
password char(16)
email varchar(25)


Create a new file and name it dbConfig.php This will file will connect to the database

<?
// Replace the variable values below
// with your specific database information.
$host = "localhost";
$user = "UserName";
$pass = "Password";
$db   = "dbName";

// This part sets up the connection to the 
// database (so you don't need to reopen the connection
// again on the same page).
$ms = mysql_pconnect($host, $user, $pass);
if ( !$ms )
{
echo "Error connecting to database.\n";
}

// Then you need to make sure the database you want
// is selected.
mysql_select_db($db);
?>

<? // Replace the variable values below // with your specific database information. $host = "localhost"; $user = "UserName"; $pass = "Password"; $db = "dbName"; // This part sets up the connection to the // database (so you don't need to reopen the connection // again on the same page). $ms = mysql_pconnect($host, $user, $pass); if ( !$ms ) { echo "Error connecting to database.\n"; } // Then you need to make sure the database you want // is selected. mysql_select_db($db); ?>

Registration name this file "register.php"

<?php
